Civil Service Examination (CSE) preparation requires both offline and online study. Initially, aspirants had only books as the resources to learn from, now there are so many kinds of resources available.

There are various websites that give you a good platform to learn. But, you need to be focused on the best website for your preparation while going through information on them.

There are a lot of sources on the Internet but if we just focus on one particular website, it will be of immense help and cater to your needs. You cannot be a time-waster. By time wasters, we mean the lure of irrelevant news articles and games.

Online learning is the greatest information provider in today’s education sector and the online information database is updated continuously hence presenting a great opportunity for learning for CSE and various other examinations.

Therefore, We present a comprehensive list of Best websites for UPSC Preparation and also useful websites for UPSC IAS preparation covering almost all aspects in Civil Services Exam (CSE) preparation – Prelims, Mains and Interview.

Best Website for UPSC current affairs

In the present scenario, the significance of current affairs has proportionally increased with the analytical trend of questions. Its uncertainty can be sensed from last year’s paper where many direct questions are asked from current affairs.

The significance of current affairs in recent times is unavoidable. Most of the CSE paper comprises a dynamic portion, so the relevance of current affairs is inevitable. For this purpose, just focus on the best website which covers all contemporary issues with a static aspect. For all the information related to UPSC current affairs, UPSC Quiz, Test Series, all notifications, and UPSC news, these are the best website to visit –

  • Vision IAS
  • Insightsonindia
  • Drishti IAS
  • Byjus IAS
  • IAS Parliament

Current Affairs play a key role in all three stages of UPSC preparation. It’s important to concentrate on the best Current Affairs website which provides all the information at one stop.

Current Affairs covers a wide range of topics that sometimes overlaps with static subjects like History, Polity, Economics, Geography, and more often with Dynamic subjects like environment, science, and technology. Henceforth, it is hard to classify questions under a specific heading/topic.
